Farley campaign holds Tuxedo Park fundraiser

Republican congressional candidate Chele Chiavacci Farley will hold a campaign fundraiser on Saturday in Tuxedo Park, the village in which she and her family have settled as she prepares to challenge Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney for New York’s 18th Congressional District seat next year.

An invitation distributed by Tuxedo Park Mayor David McFadden suggests guests and supporters contribute $250, $1,000 or $2,800 per person, which is the federal limit, or up to $11,200 per couple to hit the maximum for both a primary and a general election (Farley has no Republican primary rival at this stage). The fundraiser is taking place at the home of Barbara and Peter Regna.

“We need Chele in Congress to stand up to the Washington elite and vote for the things we support,” McFadden and his wife, Robin, say in the invitation email, which notes that the Farleys are their neighbors. “Furthermore, we need Congress to work together to get things done – Chele will make that a priority.”

Farley and her husband, Richard, rented a house in Tuxedo Park earlier this year, shortly before she announced her 2020 run for the 18th District seat. The private-equity executive had lived in Manhattan for 26 years before then. She challenged Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand for her seat last year, an uphill battle that Gillibrand won by 34 percentage points.

McFadden waged his own bid for Congress in 2010, competing with three other Republicans and stepping aside without a primary after committee members endorsed Nan Hayworth, a Westchester County eye doctor. Hayworth went on to unseat Democrat John Hall that November, only to lose her seat two years later to Maloney, who is now in his fourth term.
